Yes, I am that guy that has to come to this forum feeling proud he made WS for first time.
I am closer To 50 than 40, and a baseball die hard. I coach my son’s travel team which is one of the best in the country for their age and we bond over the sport. I have played the show for ages but always RtTS , but he turned me on to DD last year for first time. I loved collecting cards as a kid so was hooked and while it took me a bit to adapt to the speeds of RS, made Championship series most seasons but would always die in low 800s.
This year I only made one attempt prior to this season but made the mistake of trying to go from 600 to 900 WS on 5 days and it just burnt me out having To try to play multiple games on days I was clearly off, peaking around 865 than sliding back…. I thought I wouldn’t even try again as I don’t really like RS but decided to give it one more shot and do it slow this time. Went 16-3 on the season and hit near .300 which is good for me.
Anyway, my wife’s eyes would roll so fast she might suffer brain damage if I tried to explain this “accomplishment” to her so you guys are one of the few places that might appreciate my story.
Thanks to those who made it this far in my post…this “old guy” for this community and game signing out.
Cheers ( yes, I will shamelessly rock the WS icon for a short while )
